Certification scheme attracts 700 tradespeople

More than 700 tradesmen and women have registered for national certification.

Diallo Rabain, the Minister of Education and Workforce Development, said a total of 713 people had signed up for the scheme.

The number includes 412 landscapers, 97 auto mechanics, 182 electricians and 22 welders.

Mr Rabain said registration applications would be accepted until December 31 “to ensure a comprehensive file is obtained”.

He added the normal registration fee of $265 would also be waived until the deadline.

Mr Rabain said: “It is important that we get this certification process correct as it will lead to the protection of Bermudian workers in the designated fields.

“Let me take this opportunity to encourage those working in these fields to come in and get registered.”

The registration drive was unveiled last month as a way to get Bermudian trades people back to work.

Welders, vehicle service technicians, electricians and landscape gardeners are all required to register.
